This exhibition features student artists from MS35 in Bedford–Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Throughout the 2020-2021 school year, whether learning remotely or partially in-person, student artists found time and made space to get creative. In visual arts classes, we reflect on ourselves and recognize what makes each of us so brilliant. As we see our own qualities, we can then notice the amazing traits of our peers and community. The arts are how we strengthen our communities. We imagine the future we want to see, voice the changes we all need, and then take the steps to build it. In Our Eyes highlights photography from New York City public middle school students who see the light in themselves and the world around them.

    Stephen Decatur Middle School 35

    Stephen Decatur Middle School 35, The Miracle on MacDonough is located in the historic neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Our school community takes pride in providing quality instruction on a daily basis while ensuring clear and high expectations for all students. To prepare our students for the 21st century, MS35 integrates the social-emotional needs of our students through sixth-grade Freshman Academy, seventh-grade Restorative Circles, and eighth-grade Civics and Community Service Projects. Students thrive towards mastery by engaging with rich texts through reading, writing, and discussion. They participate in classroom activities that encourage critical thinking and develop deeper understandings, while demonstrating these thoughts through a variety of student-centered and student-led tasks. They are immersed in an academically rigorous environment that fosters productive struggle in the 21st century. By the end of eighth grade, students will have the opportunity to take three high school Regents: algebra, living environment, and U.S. history & government. Community partners engage with our students through workshops and presentations, field excursions, and in-school residencies. Our caregivers are partners in each child’s educational journey and we value the ability to communicate with each and every one of our families.
